Kids loved them no doubt. I'll let the video tell the rest of the story ...
... so our challenge, if you've watched the video above, is should we keep the turtles, because the kids love them, and/or because and it'll give our aquarium something different than the "regular" fish I've never been too flattered about anyways, or just give them up and turn them in to the pet store that my wife gets all her fish and aquarium bits and pieces from? My wife wants no major part in looking after turtles, even though she's the self-confessed aquarium lover.
I dont really think the kids would mind their being given away that much. They'll complain a little bit, but will go back to living with the fish, which they themselves are not too flattered with. They would rather have hamsters - something I suggested to my wife and she emphatically said "NO" to.
In reality, all they really want is a dog. All I really would care about is a dog. But I gotta say no to that at this point in time, until we get a bigger place to live in. The Mrs isnt opposed to that idea, and for once, regarding pets, she agrees with me on when it'll be worth having a dog around.
